I will speak for myself (but think it is the opinion of many forum members), when we "bash" SN, we use SN because it is shorter. Most of us, I think, target the top managers and not the front line soldiers who do a good job with the means put at their disposal.

Indeed: Brussels Airlines failed this time. But such a failure is rare for them. And the SN-bashers (like you) never state that it's the airlines' CEO own fault when such things happen.
Its funny to be called a “basher” as, when you read all of my posts, you will find both positive and negative about every airline that I wrote about. Same can’t be said about everyone .....

More: article on HLN.be (in dutch);
"Brussels Airlines has 2 'fume' incidents in 3 days."
Summary:
There have been two so-called 'fume' incidents at Brussels Airlines in three days. This involves heavily contaminated, toxic air from the engines in the cabin or in the cockpit. On Saturday, after the landing, the entire crew had to go to the hospital to the emergency department and yesterday, pilots had to land with their oxygen mask.
"We realize that fume events are a problem that occurs throughout the industry" the airline reacts.

More coverage in the media since 'new' testimonies:

"Toxic vapors are due to lax maintenance" claims a former SN technician.
article on HLN.be (in dutch);
Summary:
Part of the incidents with toxic air could have been avoided according to a technician who worked for years at Brussels Airlines. Maintenance protocol would not be strictly followed. "Replacing the oil is too lax, causing leaks." The airline denies:" We always strictly follow the procedures."

"Brussels Airlines knows where vapors are coming from. But ignores it"
article on HLN.be (in dutch);

Any "unofficial" statistics of SN's performance for October?

Well, technically it's still an SN plane, so it's logical SN deploys it on one of their own flights. At least it's better than leasing another plane and this way, pax can get used a litte bit to flying EW...
